  • Description 

    This route climbs relatively clean and solid rock up the mellow face wandering from side to side as you may see fit. The narrowness of the feature will limit the deviation to a degree whereas you are fairly sure to be climbing the same as anyone else.

    Location 

    This route climbs the narrow east face up the center of the formation we referred to as 'Damascus' in keeping with the nearby rock 'the Apostle.' The name is not so much a biblical invocation as it is a metaphor for the state of mind of one of the ascensionists at the time.

    Protection 

    The route is given to soloing, but for those who prefer a rope to scramble, a standard light rack will provide some protection on this route. The descent is a scramble off to the West and does not require a rope to descend.
